Yeah, when the NSA guys came to my house the other night, one of them asked if he could use my computer. So THAT'S what he was doing!
You need to keep up. The NSA has been intercepting machines and mod’ing them before they are delivered to the customer (no, not us low level peon’s posting on FR but some key targets and some key geography, yes).
Heh. Seriously though, they actually intercepted deliveries from the manufacturers, modified systems, and then delivered them to the target. So stuff like this could be added before you even booted the machine for the first time.
